My first experience of The Oak Tree of Peover was memorable one. Not only is this a stunning Cheshire wedding venue, but I also got to spend the day with the best people and the lashing rain didn't dampen any spirits.
I'd had the absolute pleasure of meeting Adam and Sam a few years ago when I shot Sam's sister's wedding at Styal Lodge.
We hit it off straight away and so it was a real honour to be invited to photograph Sam and Adam's wedding and a great opportunity to see Hayley and James once again and the rest of their family.

surrounding countryside. It’s not just the daylight hours that enhance this incredible venue

As beautiful and impressive as this venue is during the day, it’s becomes a totally different
